Coaching + Mentoring

Tiffanie Elliott, Elliott Events, Event Designer, Nashville Wedding Planner

I could pretend that I am some marketing guru with the tools to making you millions of dollars.

I could compose a 10-page document that boasts about how it contains the secrets to upgrading your business in six months. However, I’m not and I won’t. I am not a magician that can conjure up a million-dollar business for you, but I can teach you and show you the steps on how I built my business over the course of thirteen years through hands-on experience, mistakes and an abundance of knowledge.  

For 13 years I have had my hands in many pots. I have purchased and overseen hundreds of thousands of dollars in inventory. I have ordered and processed luxury floral arrangements.  I have hired and oriented staff. I have built systems on efficiency, and then broke those systems due to inefficiency.

I have made mistakes, learned from those mistakes and applied those lessons to my business which have all made it into what is now. I have produced hundreds of successful events and weddings, but not without having to go through some trials and tribulations. When I first got started, I did not have a mentor. I did not have someone who could advise me on important decisions, but I wish that I had.

Along the way I have attended luxury summits and workshops, done my research and gained perspective from some of the top producers and event planners in the world. As we grow our businesses, we often ask ourselves, “am I doing this right?” “Is there a better way I could do this?” With experience, we learn and develop efficient processes. With experience comes knowledge, and that is what I have to offer you, knowledge rooted in experience and thirteen years of trial and error. Many of my employed staff have begun their own business ventures based off of knowledge that has been passed down to them through mentorship with me. I am now offering coaching services to my repertoire so that you can learn from an industry-led professional.

How does the consulting work?

You will fill out an intake form and we will schedule in advance the number of hours you would like to book. Before each session, you will fill out a form that entails subjects you would like to cover during the call/meeting. Payment is due prior to each session and we do not deal with contracts. If you love the sessions (which I know you will), we can continue to book them per hour.

Examples of topics we can cover during our 1:1 session:

  • Pricing
  • Flower ordering
  • Inventory Purchasing
  • Staffing
  • Creating Design Boards
  • Floral Mechanics
  • How to manage a team
  • Planning Processes
  • Efficiency
  • Work/ Life Balance (I promise it’s possible)
  • Building a luxury brand
  • Marketing Strategies
  • How to reach the luxury market
  • How to book your dream clients
  • Branding
  • Website/ social media review
  • Social Media
  • Building a portfolio

I added coaching services to my service listings because I love to teach. I enjoy helping people expand their businesses and come to the realization that it is possible to make money doing what they love. Let’s keep it real, this industry is not for the faint of heart! The great thing about it is that you are in control of your brand. You are the magician that weaves the magic together. You create the things that you desire, select the clientele that you want to work with and trust. There is no greater feeling than after the grand finale when you realize that you composed something from merely a concept and made it into a reality.

Let’s work together to create the design and event planning business of your dreams. Let’s identify your business struggles, strengths, weaknesses and how you can accomplish your goals while making a profit. We will outline the basics of understanding how to run a successful business, craft and implement profitable strategies and processes on the backend. No matter what stage of business that you are in, there is something to be gained from having a mentor who has been exactly where you are.

I can’t promise you millions of dollars, but I can guarantee that you will walk away more knowledgeable than you came.

Investment for coaching and mentoring: one-hour sessions are $150, and a two-hour session is $250.
